using KDE i found that the network transfer speeds are quite low. I have a gigabit network and can only get 28 Mb/s on dolphin , konqueror or any other file manager using KDE platform.
This does effect all protocols fish,smb,sftp,ftp, etc .....
fish and ftp should be optimized for higher transfer speeds as they do write the files directly.
Using midnight commander, I do get around 60 Mb/s, which is what I expect when copying data from my server onto my laptop ( 5600 rpm drive ).
What is your experience with networkspeeds on a Gigabyte Network? Any tips to improve the transfer speeds ?
